This stunning architecturally designed pavillion house is perfect for couples, family and friends to escape and enjoy quality time together in. Aramoana is a pet friendly property located in the beachside village of Casuarina, in Northern NSW. Casuarina is only a 15 min drive from Coolangatta Airport. Long stretches of perfect, golden, uncrowded sandy beaches, stretch off into the distance. Nearby, are tourist hotspots like Surfers Paradise or Byron Bay and Bangalow. Well worth taking a day trip to check out.
This unique 4 bedroom "Pavillion Style" house, with its layers of sandstone, glass and timber, unites gracefully with alfresco spaces and lush landscapes to create a perfect place to kick back and unwind. There is a peaceful vibe flowing throughout the house. A real 'home away from home' has been created for your stay at Aramoana. Just so welcoming and relaxing from the moment you step inside the front gate. All you could want for, and more, in your holiday home.
External breeze-ways and courtyards, serve as a continuum of space, while louvre windows and sliding glass doors, draw the landscape indoors, keeping the house cool with the fresh ocean breezes in summer. The soaring sandstone clad walls add a creative dimension, which are enhanced by natural basalt stone floors. A sparkling above ground lap pool greets you as you enter the property, inviting you to dive in and cool off.
Enter the first pavillion, which incorporates kitchen / dining / lounge. An amazing sandstone feature wall, brings this area together as one. A room where family and friends can come together to catch up and relax. The room has huge sliding doors and banks of louvre windows all around. When opened up, this creates an outdoor feel, whilst enjoying the comforts of being indoors. Grab a coldie, or pour yourself a cup of tea, then wander over to the fully equipped kitchen, which has all you need for cooking up a storm. This north facing room stays cool in summer, but bathes in the warm winter sun. For the cooler nights, an open fireplace to sit back and toast your toes in front of.
Head out to the second pavillion. To the left, you will find a dedicated media room for viewing TV and Austar, a DVD player to watch movies, and also an iPod docking station and CD player have been provided. Perfect for the kids to hang out in, leaving the adults to some peace and quiet time. To the right, and here is the master bedroom. A spacious, self contained haven. Head straight up the stairs to 3 bright airy bedrooms, bathroom and the deck. An awesome spot to sit back and dreamily watch the world go by while listening to the ocean, which is just a stones throw away.... perhaps with a wine or beer and some nibbles. Once you have checked out the house, take a dip in the sandstone clad 12m above ground lap pool, or have a snooze in one of the deck chairs. Take time out to have a read of your favourite book in one of the many outdoor areas, surrounded by peaceful gardens.
The built in BBQ provides a great way to wind down after a busy day. Relax at the outdoor dining table with your drink, and let the story swapping begin Hopefully the cook won't burn the snags while regaling everyone with 'the one that got away'..
The downstairs Master king bedroom is a retreat for parents. As you enter this oasis, you are greeted by your own private lounge area. Perfect to hide away and read a book or magazine. A king bed, with ensuite bathroom finishes off your piece of paradise.
Also at your door is your own tropical garden to just 'be'. . NB: Master bedroom CANNOT be accessed internally from the second pavilion. It has its own access via an external door, across from media room.
Upstairs has 3 bright, airy bedrooms, all with built in robes and ceiling fans. Two of the rooms, have the option of the beds set up as either a king, or 2 x single bed combinations. The third room is set up with a queen sized bed.
This stunning house has been built with natural resources in mind. With its indoor / outdoor feel, it will definitely provide you, your family and your friends with a place to escape the daily grind and re-energise. With so many spots to enjoy on your own, or in groups, there's plenty of space for everyone. You could just possibly lose the kids in all the hide outs This house can accommodate up to 8 people, allowing friends and family to reunite as ONE.... And best of all, you can bring your furry friends along for the ride
